Jenny Hissey's spouse, Ted, developed mesothelioma and an out-of-court settlement was reached on the case one month ahead of it going to trial, the Western Telegraph reports.
"This compensation does not make up for our loss, but does give us a sense of relief that the employer has taken responsibility for his death," she said.
Mr Hissey had been exposed to the material while working for the CLG - formerly known as the Department for Environment - at the Royal Naval Armaments Depot at Trecwn and RAF Brawdy between 1990 and 1993.
According to his wife, he was an active man and found it extremely difficult being bedbound after he was diagnosed with the condition.
A recent article in the Hartlepool Mail described how one family is currently seeking legal advice regarding the death of a grandfather who is suspected to have succumbed to an asbestos-related illness.
